We are currently running YF 7.3+ in a virtual environment on Hyper-v.
The YF infrastructure consists of:
2 x VM - HAProxy Load Balancer running on Ubuntu 16.04
2 x VM - YF 7.3+ running on Ubuntu 16.04
1 x VM - MySQL running on Ubuntu 16.04
Above is currently supporting roughly 20-30 concurrent users.
We have just signed a new customer, and in February 2018, 300 new users will have access to our portal.
Since our current Hyper-v cluster is almost maxed out resource wise, we have added a 2 new physical servers, in order to isolate our YF infrastructure.
The initial thought, was to deploy a HA Cluster with linux containers based on LXC and continue to use 2 x HAProxy, 2 x YF 7.4 (clustered) and 1 x MySQL (configuration database).
- Do you have any experience with the performance of YF running in LXC.
- Is MqSQL still a viable choice performance wise, considering the increase in users.
- Do you have any performance recommendations in regards to the configuration of tomcat (clustered) and MqSQL (if this is the choice)
